Group 1 coaching (6:00 - 7:00) is for first and second year riders or less experienced Novice level riders. Group 2 (7:00 - 8:00) is for Intermediates, Experts or advanced (3rd year+ Novices) If you are unsure which Group you should attend please come to Group 1. You may be moved up or down between Groups throughout the season.
Here is the scoop. Track will be too muddy to ride this morning. We will still be there from 10:00 till noon to answer any questions. We may look at opening later today/tonight depending on conditions.
Opening weekend is around the corner, it all begins May 2nd. For those that want to help with pre-season set-up we are having a work bee on April 25 and 26 starting at 10:00am both days. There will be no riding on that weekend as there will be heavy equipment in use on the track. If you are a returning member make sure to get your membership and license. Go here to sign up online.
We will be scheduling a parents orientation the first week of the season, stay tuned for dates and times
BMX Day in Alberta happens on May 31st and we will be hosting a bike and gear swap meet that day as well.
Hey members! If you already know you are signing up this year then why wait for the license bottleneck at the beginning of the season? Get your license now. They are good for the calendar year only so waiting doesn't save you anything. However, signing up early guarantees you won't be waiting for your license to arrive when the season has already begun. Sign up here anytime

Established in 1979, Lethbridge was one of the first BMX racing clubs in Canada. We are a non-profit society with a board of directors all on a volunteer basis. The club has had several temporary locations starting in the coulees, to the river-bottom, next to Marshalls Auto Wreckers, in what is now a parking lot to the north of the Ability Resource Centre, and finally to it's new permament home in 1986 where it remains to this day.
